What can be done to make this process easier?

EAC has published a new paper that will answer these important questions, assisting election officials and policy makers as they work to improve a process that can pose challenges for this segment of the electorate.

This paper will also inform the ongoing work of the Technical Guidelines Development Committee (TGDC), a joint advisory committee of EAC and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) that is creating a common data format for the delivery of blank ballots to military and overseas voters.

We encourage election officials to take advantage of this paper as well as other recently-published resources by NIST to assist in improving services to these voters.

Download the paper Uniformed and Overseas Citizens Absentee Voting Act Registration and Voting Processes.
